Diversity & Inclusion

At Furman, we embrace meaningful diversity and equality as embodied by both implicit values and explicit practices in all of our endeavors. As a university community, we are committed to supporting students, faculty and staff from every walk of life.

For Furman, diversity goes beyond any single category and includes the full range of differences that encompass all that makes us unique, including differences in race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, citizenship status, disability, religion, worldview and many others.
